MANAGEMENT OF PALLIATIVE CARE


Management of advance cancer is challenging and forms a part of the

major workload to the Surgical Department as we dont have a proper palliative team as well as palliative unit. (INTRODUCTION) Patients with advance cancer should be treated promptly and they

need adequate care for them to have better quality of life (DESIRABLE OUTCOME/ EXPECTATION) There are ample of opportunities to make this possible in our setting.

(OPPORTUNITIES) We hope to identify areas that can be improved by carrying out a

study using certain indicators. (INTENT TO IMPROVE)

11. Topic

Introduction
Quality of life (QOL) is a core outcome of palliative care yet in our setting, there is lack of evidence on patients level of QOL. We aim to describe the QOL among patients with incurable progressive breast and colon CA receiving palliative care in our hospital. We hope that with this study, we can improve our services to improve QOL among breast and colon CA patients.
